Re: Advise on Weight & Type of Anchor for Islander 37

On a more serious note, personally I (32', 14k lbs) like the 3-anchor approach - lunch hook, overnighter, storm anchor. I use the lunch hook most often: 8lb Danforth, 10'chain, 150' line. I then have a 22lb Bruce - good for where I am (mud) - 20' 5/16 chain, 150' 1/2" line. And then a 35lb Manson. I am saving up for the chain/rode, but it will be 30+' 3/8 chain, 200' 5/8 line.....
